@rosyna Often times said code causes collateral damage for other users who weren’t having problems before.

@rustyshelf @parrots Exactly. Presumably, the help content is still on a server, so it’s just trading one kind of server switch for another.

@etresoft @rosyna AFAIK, they did not announce a version at that time.

@Freerunnering If you send it to someone else they would need to Control-click and choose Open to run it because it’s not notarized.
